Cellers Baronia del Montsant

Montsant, Spain | website

Cellers Baronia del Montsant was founded  in 1998 by partners Carlos Macías Gallego and winemaker Xavier Canals. Like many things in northern Spain, the  winery is a juxtoposition of the old and the new. It is a wholey  modern winery that produces cutting edge wines. At the same time, it’s based in a very old wine region, Monstant, and most of its wine is sourced from very old vineyards, with most vines dating back eighty years. Production is very small, about 80,000 bottles.

The 2009 Flor d'Englora Roure is a blend of 63% Garnacha, 32% Carinena, and the balance Syrah, Merlot and Tempranillo aged in 25% new barriques (the first oak treatment for this cuvee). Dark ruby-colored, it exhibits a bouquet of smoke, mineral, espresso, Asian spices, black cherry, and plum. Savory, ripe, medium to full-bodied, and concentrated, it is an outstanding value for drinking over the next 5-6 years. - 90 points Wine Advocate
